NOTE: This show is recommended for mature audiences
Award-winning singer/songwriter, performer, satirist, multi-instrumentalist, and entertainer Eric Schwartz will perform at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse on Saturday, Nov 4th at 8PM.
He's been playing music and comedy venues nationally for fifteen years. Eric's songs have been sung by Ronny Cox, Holly Near and Van Dyke Parks. His songs go from the political to the profane, sometimes both and have won him the International Songwriting Competition's best comedy song of the year award.
Eric's latest CD release The Aristocrat was called "a comic treasure" by Paul Zollo (Songwriters on Songwriting) and the U.K.'s Rock'n'Reel magazine says it is "beautifully produced and perfectly executed".
Schwartz has garnered radio play on many stations including NPR's All Things Considered. His CD "The Better Man" caused Brian Keathley of KALX Berkeley to say "by far his best work yet. A great collection of tunes with humor, and social commentary - some of which is damn profound. Be listening for it this week and beyond on my radio shows!"
